Suffolk Herring Festival

herring festival.png

October is the time of year when the shoals of herring arrived on the east coast followed by the fishing fleet which packed the local ports. This vast industry may now be a distant memory but herring is so good for you and it's place in our heritage – and on our dinner plates – should not be forgotten.

That's why the Herring Festival returns to The Cut in October celebrating this humble fish through food, drink, music, theatre and art.

There’s entertainment with a rich east coast flavour, including the WONDERFUL BEAST'S RETURN OF THE WILDMAN, a glorious take on an enduring local legend, and the JOHN WARD TRIO who give a modern edge to the folk tradition.

There’s an all day barbecue with freshly caught North Sea herring, bloaters and kippers plus maatjesharing fresh from Holland. In addition to its regular menu, the Cut’s Café will offer a special kipper kedgeree and pumpkin soup. The fish will be caught the day before (shoals allowing) – You simply can’t get fresher!

You'll want to catch the Suffolk Herring Festival at The Cut this October!

Mitchell-Finch Design will be in attendance with a stall full of fishy brooches, tin can nib pens and much more!

old dairy studios art trail

Old Dairy Studios is showcasing an artists and craftsman’s trail over two weekends in September 2017.
Starting on Saturday 9th to Sunday 10th then continuing over a long weekend on Friday 15th, Saturday 16th and Sunday 17th.

Entry is free and all studios will be open from 11am to 5pm

We ran this very successful trail in 2015 and 2016, this is an expanded version in terms of the number of artists to visit.

Individual approach was important in forming this group. All artists are established practitioners working in a wide range of media from printmaking, collage and painting to textiles and crafts. We have artists working with intricate techniques in cut paper, in appliqué and embroidery, expressive painting and lino-cuts. In addition, hand made drawing pens, carved wood, finely detailed watercolours and more. You’ll be able to see work in progress, ask questions about practices and buy pieces.

With a hub in Beccles, the trail spans the river Waveney from Wheatacre to the north to Brampton in the south, a total of 8 miles. Venues are in artists studios, houses and Old Dairy Studios. You’ll be able to see samples of work from all those taking part at the gallery in Beccles, pick up maps, ask questions relating to the trail and artists taking part etc. Beccles itself is a busy market town with plenty of cafés,  restaurants and pubs for refreshments. Wheatacre also has a good pub. You can cycle the trail or use public transport for Beccles and Brampton.

norwich lanes

 

Rebecca Pymar who does colourful local scenes of the coast of East Anglia plus myself will be sharing a gazebo at the Norwich Lanes Summer fair.

'The Norwich Lanes Association are delighted to announce that following a year out, the much-loved Norwich Lanes Summer Fayre will be returning once again to the streets, alleyways, courtyards and open spaces of this historic part of the city in 2017.
What started off in 2008 as something akin to a village fete, the Norwich Lanes Summer Fayre quickly established itself into one of the highlights of the city’s event calendar, regularly attracting crowds of 15,000 or more.'

This year’s fayre will take place on Sunday 9th July and will once again coincide with the city’s Lord Mayor’s Celebration and cap off a whole weekend of events.

So back comes the St Benedict’s Street Market, live music stages, DJ booths, pop-up perfomances and art trails.
